2014 Winter Olympics Maria Höfl-Riesch

Wins Olympic gold medal

10 Feb, 2014

Höfl-Riesch wins the Olympic gold medal in the Women’s Alpine Skiing: Combined event. The skier is the pre-race favorite and defending Olympic champion. Though she ends her first run in 5th position, here combined time of 2:34.62 minutes is enough to secure first place.

It’s unbelievable. Of course, I was the big favorite for today, but I had some problems on the downhill course.
